GE entrusts delivery of world's biggest jet engine to Volga-Dnepr Airlines
Date:2018-07-10 Readers:
GE AVIATION partnered with Volga-Dnepr Airlines to return the world's largest jet engine to Ohio, following the GE9X's successful on-wing testing in Victorville, California, reports the American Journal of Transportation.

The GE9X, which has a diameter equal to that of the body of a Boeing 737, was loaded into one of the airline's An-124-100 freighters using the aircraft's ramp loading system.

Volga-Dnepr provided logistics support for the GE9X engine's return to Ohio for additional testing at GE Aviation's Test Operations facility in Peebles.

This was Volga-Dnepr's second flight in support of GE's GE9X programme having previously transported the engine from Columbus to Victorville late last November.

Due to GE Aviation's strict scheduling requirements, Volga-Dnepr was able to customise the flight planning for GE Aviation and bring the return delivery to Ohio forward by two days.

The advance saved GE valuable time and maximised testing hours in the Peebles facility. The delivery was the culmination of two years of planning and development by GE and Volga-Dnepr.
